Microsoft and Nokia, two erstwhile leaders in the mobile space, are turning to each other in hopes of recapturing their former glory. Very faint hopes at best.
According to Microsoft press release, the agreement means bringing
Microsoft Office Mobile and Microsoft business communications, collaboration and device management software to Nokia’s Symbian devices… starting with the company’s business-optimized range, Nokia Eseries.
For Nokia, this means being able to ship smartphones running its Symbian operating system with Microsoft IM, conferencing and Office productivity applications tailored for the mobile form-factor.
